Behavioral Therapy and Consultation

What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)?

An applied science provided by a licensed professional (Board Certified Behavior Analyst) or under the supervision of a licensed professional in which interventions are applied systematically to socially significant behaviors in order to cause meaningful change, then using data demonstrates whether the interventions are responsible for change in a specific behavior.

What does ABA therapy look like?

ABA is an applied science that can include many strategies and interventions that target behavior change. Some common ABA therapy techniques include Discrete Trial Training (DTT), Natural Environment Teaching (NET), Verbal Behavior Approach (VB), modeling, parent training, and behavior intervention to specifically name only a few methods of providing ABA services. ABA is proven by decades of research to be effective in the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders, and it should be individualized for each client in order to secure best treatment outcomes.
